  • Great recipe! Sautéed the bell peppers and warmed salsa before mixing, it was great with a little shredded chz on top. Made it for dinner and it was very filling - 6/7/11

  • Really good! Except I made the mistake of substituting red pepper for cumin. It came out a bit too spicy so I added 2 chopped tomatoes and a bit of extra salsa! I will def. make this again! - 7/19/10

  • Husband gave it a 3.5 and as for me, I am PG so my opinion is skewed. I loved it at first but then wasn't so sure about the cumin. I don't use a lot of cumin though so I think I need to try it again. I love quinoa though, and the red pepper was a nice touch. Thanks for sharing! - 3/16/10
